Congress Hall and Chamber of Deputies in Santiago, Chile, 1890. Gelatine
An Original Gelatine Print of the Congress Hall and Chamber of Deputies in Santiago, Chile. EARLY PICTURE. From the American Architect and Building News, February 15, 1890.
This picture is extremely hard to find. The American Architect and Building News had a very small circulation during this time and these original gelatines only appeared in a very limited number of issues that were distributed to a few prominent architects. This is from the architect Bruce Price's collection. It measures 12.75 by 8.5 inches. Has a mat border and foam core backing (not attached to the picture). The whole picture measures approximately 16 by 12 inches (with border). Extraordinary detail in this early photographic print. Shrink wrapped.
Plan is in VG+ condition with browning around the edges and light crinkling.
